VERY COMFORTABLE FORMER WINEMAKER'S HOUSE IN CHANGE, NR BEAUNE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Nolay - Le Pigeonnier

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

In the pretty village of Change, situated just 2 minutes from Nolay in the Valley de la Cozanne, and on the ‘Route des Vignobles de Beaune à Cluny’, you will find this very comfortable 2 bedroom former winemaker’s house.

Built at the turn of the 19th Century it was one of the traditional houses of the longstanding winemaker ‘Domaine Georges Guérin’ in Change. The lower level served as a ‘Cave’ holding large barrels of wine, and the first floor was used as the living area with access to the rear garden and its unique ‘pigeonnier’.

100 years later, Gérard Martini, the new owner, fell in love with the house and gave it a new name, ‘Le Pigeonnier’. He has completely restored the property, conserving much of the original charm & antique furniture but at the same time has created a well equipped home with a delightful bathroom & cleverly designed kitchen. You will enjoy original ‘Art Noveau’ elements such as floral and geometric floor tiles, the rosace, stained glass.

Outside: You arrive at the walled courtyard and double gates. There is ample parking for 2 cars here in the courtyard. An original well has been turned into a pretty fountain feature.

Wide steps lead to the upper garden and outdoor dining area. A wooden table and 6 chairs under metal framed gazebo with outdoor kitchen and BBQ provide the perfect ambiance for al-fresco dining. A wood store can be found by the back door – wood supplied for those cooler summer evenings.

The garden is fully enclosed and has many flower and shrub borders.

At the rear of the property you will see 'Le Pigeonnier' (giving the name to the property) which has been nicely restored. Next to it there is the swimming pool and the little spa with, sauna, shower and gym with a professional fitness bike. The stereo unit provides beautiful Feng Shui or Yoga music while you are relaxing.

You also find a Boule-track for the typical french game.

In the court-yard you can play table tennis

Biking and hiking: The 'Pigeonnier' is ideally located for your biking and hiking activities. There is detailed information in the house where to bike and hike.

Behind the property you find the recently opened 'VOIE VERTE' (Green Way') built on the old railway track: ideal for hiking, biking and even roller skating. When you go to the right you pass the beautiful Maranges vinyards, you come down to Santenay with it's nice Castles, you can turn right again and continue along the 'Canal du Centre'.

EXTRA: there are 7 (!) Bikes for your use (free of charge): 4 mountain bikes for adults, 2 MTB's for children of different ages and one little bike with supporting wheels for a real 'youngster'. We provide 2 bike-baby-seats plus enough helmets.

Wine and wine making: Our neighbours 'the Monnots' are vintners (Domaine Monnot-Roche). They look after our guests and the property while we are away. If you are interested, Christophe can explain a lot about the wines and wine making. Of course you can taste his Hautes-Côtes-de-Beaune, Maranges 1er Cru, Chardonnay, Aligoté...

Change is a charming little village, home to 8 winemakers!

In the heart of Hautes Côtes de Beaune, 20km south west of Beaune (Wine capital of Burgundy), 28km North west of Chalon (large town on the River Saone) and 25 km east of Autun (roman town and gateway to the Morvan Natural parc), Change is perfectly situated for exploring the best that Burgundy has to offer.

The Canal du centre is just a few minutes away, where you can walk, cycle and horse ride along the bridle paths. Hikers can start in Change, either from the ‘Circuit de Trois Monts’ or the famous GR7. From the top of Mont des Trois Croix you will find a fantastic view. The 4(!) mountain bikes at the house will help you to experience the surrounding natural beauty that Change has to offer. For those who like a little bit of ‘Las Vegas’, Santenay with its castles and famous casino is just 5 km away.

Last but not least Change has a little Bistro where you can find local food and try to understand the Burgundy dialect.
